Co-hosted with Dispensary Permits, a national cannabis business consulting company, the webinar will cover the value of a franchise system in cannabis, highlighting what a franchise business model offers, the need for it in cannabis and questions to ask franchisors.

Additional topics include all areas pertaining to dispensary operations, such as navigating the dispensary licensing process, banking in cannabis and managing cash flow, frequent compliance offenders and how to avoid them, developing the right product mix and building vender relations, creating an enticing in-store experience, and more.
"Whether you're already operating a dispensary or looking at stepping into the market, the Navigator Web Series is a must attend you won't want to miss," said Unity Rd.'s VP of Franchise Development Justin Livingston. "Our goal at Unity Rd. is to inspire confidence in the benefits of cannabis for all, and this series is another route [outside of the franchise opportunity] where we can help others learn from our experiences and the best practices we've developed over the past decade in the legal cannabis space."
The heavily regulated industry boasts attractive opportunities for entrepreneurs interested in breaking into the booming industry that's poised to reach $41 billion by 2025, but the obstacles that await them are undeniably challenging. Unity Rd. is able to mitigate the hurdles by offering franchise partners the knowledge, resources and ongoing support needed to compliantly and successfully operate a dispensary.
Currently, Unity Rd. has signed multiple agreements with more than 10 entrepreneurial groups across the country.
